The 15-year old skier, from West Hallam and a student a Kirk Hallam Academy, won silver in Slopestyle and gold in Street Rails this year has won several Gold and Silver Medals at the British Championships, winning both disciplines in his under-16s age category. He also won gold in the Under-16s male ski and Open male ski at the English Slopestyle Championships, making him the current England Slopestyle Champion, with a ranking of second on The British Snow Tour.

Justin says: "It has been a busy year and I have competed in many Regional Competitions from Scotland to Dorset. At Kendal I placed first Under-16s Male Ski and first Open Male Ski in Slopestyle, then at Dorset I placed first Under-16s Male Ski in Slopestyle, closely followed by first in Under-16s Male Ski in Big Air at Glasgow.

"At a ski competition closer to home, I won Best Skier of The Day in the Open Male Category on Stoke Ski Slope, followed a few weeks later by first in the Under-16s Male Ski Slopestyle and second in the Under-16s Male Ski Big Air at Norfolk Ski Slope.

"More recently, in October, I competed at the Indoor British Championships and after several hours and zones later I made the final top six men of the day and won Silver Medal in the Open Men's Category, making me British Silver Medallist in Slopestyle 2015.

"The next day I headed to Kidsgrove and won first place in the Under-16s Male Ski and on October 17 I held my own Freestyle Ski Competition at Stoke Ski Centre to raise funds for The Rob George Foundation of which I am an Ambassador, raising £800.

During this year I have also become an Ambassador for Snowsports England promoting Go Ski Go Board. I am looking forward to competing at London Ride at Battersea Park and also at the BRITS Invitational at Battersea Park both this November."
